Drinks industry giant Constellation Europe, the company behind Hardys wine and Babycham, has gained a five-fold increase in internet bandwidth with a managed service from NTL Telewest Business.

The drinks firm is using the 20mbps managed internet service from NTL Telewest to support growing volumes of e-mail traffic and provide network access for its 1,200 staff across Europe.

Constellation was seeking to give greater priority to staff accessing its network remotely, such as sales representatives logging in  from customer sites to get critical businesses information.

The firm’s IT infrastructure manager Mike Davis said, “The internet is central to all that our people do and as we continue to expand we are creating much more internet traffic.

“NTL Telewest Business has allowed us to make a massive increase in the speed of our internet access and give much more bandwidth to our staff, prioritised so that they can get access to the most important information very quickly.”

The fact that the broadband provider had its own nationwide network meant it offered a comprehensive alternative to relying on the BT network, he added.
